Still getting matched up against tier 9 most of the time with my KV5. WG big liars about improved match making for pref MM tanks. Do not but tier 8 anyone.

Trade that thing away for something better. I know it isn't an efficient way to get a new tank but still better than keeping this meme machine!

Tier 8 is miles better than it used to be but you must use stuff that can stand a chance against tier 9 and 10

 

How about HE?

More than 50% of my loadouts are HE on some tanks and I support tier 9s and 10s

 

You must adapt to the MM unless you have a sooper duper tier 10 RASHA tonk

 

EDIT

Without tier 8s to feast upon tier 9 and 10 would simply die out with only a tiny minority of players continuing to play

 

We get Frontline once a month for a week, same tier matchmaking

"We get Frontline once a month for a week, same tier matchmaking"

I dabble occasionally at T8 randoms and regret it every time.   FL and TB are my main T 8 modes,    apart from TB is now gone.

Try skirmishes...

While there might be issues with PMM tanks, I've recently completed the grind through the STA-1 and played the STA-2 repeatedly to train my crew and earn credits for the Type 61 and the match-making was fine. Maybe your warning applies to the (very) few PMM premium tier 8 tanks but the rest are in a pretty good place now.

Tier 8s seems to get tier 8 games a lot now, more than I remember they used to go a long way back.

 

You might not see that many tier 6s, but generally you rarely see tier 10s, like 1 game in 5 maybe even 1 in 6 from my experience, whereas before the recent changes it was like 3 out of 5 were tier 10. 

 

MM seems to be generally like +1/-1 for the majority of the time with +2/-2 pretty rare.

Enjoying tier 8 as long as the majority of people dont play like they are in tier 3 tanks.

I don't know dude, but i'm very happy with my pref MM Super Pershing, but that might be because it was not a terrible tank before the buff and MM changes and now it is actually quite good(for its price and role at least). Most of the games i played since the MM update i was in pure 8 games and sometimes tier 9s sometimes vs tier 7 and 6. That is for my pref MM prem, but overall the MM for the standard MM tanks is way better than it used to be, now i can activate a cred booster and farm with my favorite prems without having to spend a large chunk of my profit on the "2 key" ammo because i'm bottom tier over and over again.

That explains a lot.

Lucky you op,i miss the old mm as most of my full t8 games seem to have 43% or 200 game players in the heavy tanks with no clue.

Tier 8 seems like a winner in recent MM changes.

 

Other tiers got shafted, peobbaly because WG wnated premium tonks to have easier life so they can sell more.

Tier 8 has definitely improved and has a lot less bottom tier battles against tier 10. Still see tier 9 regularly but a good tier 8 tank will cope with that. Don't have any real stats but the "feels" tell me tier 7 has suffered a little. Rest seem much better.

 

Edit: Don't think tier 7 is bad, just not the easy farm it seemed to be in the past. All the tier 8 used to get sucked up to fight tier 9 + 10, but the improved MM has spread the love about a bit more. It's more of a level playing field now for all tiers after tier 4 which can still suck due to -1/+2.

SMM get very harshly treated in this current MM. it seems to treat them differently to normal tiers and theyu nearly always get +1 MM.

 

I've been playing my T23E3 and E25 and noticed this. Then i play normal MM tanks, normally T7/8 at the moment and see mostly same tier games.

WG could easily fix this, they could have a co op game mode as they do in WoW's, still a vastly superior game to this one, in co op you play against AI opponents, so in my case a bot against a bot, whats not to love.

MM is definately much better after the change. Nothing to complain about in my  opinion.

Tier 8 is great after the MM changes. Mostly all same tier battles now. Tier 6 is another matter tho, get shafted in tier 8 games all day.

I feel the MM got much better after the rework too, of course you get in t10 battles but it is acceptable.

Tier 9 is stil lthe sweet spot, preferential MM all the time.

This. I have generally reasonably OK MM in my KV-5, but bad (and good!) streaks happen.

kv-5 doesn't meet t10, that's like many of the older prem t8 tanks

so its -2/+1 there
